All health care and non-health care professionals treating Medicaid enrollees must be registered with Medicaid prior to performing services, per the 21st Century Cures Act. If you provide care to UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Wisconsin members and don’t have a Medicaid ID number on file with us, we may deny your claims. Claims for emergency care are the only exception to this requirement.
Once Wisconsin Medicaid accepts your enrollment application, you’ll be assigned a Medicaid provider number. Use this number on electronic and paper transactions when submitting to ForwardHealth. Read the Network News article on submitting claims as a non-National Provider Identifier (NPI) provider.
As a specialized medical vehicle provider, personal care agency and blood banks, and other care provider roles not identified as a health care professional, you’re exempt from federal NPI number requirements, per ForwardHealth guidelines.
